    More of a good thing?

    Happy friken new year!
  2. Something I didn't realize until today is the fact that you need to earn 4 mill credits across 6 different nations: What does this tell me? Oh, that WG wants every younger player to open their wallets for the "free" PEF who more than likely doesn't have ships across 6 nations, and even if they do... 4 mill credits is alot for those who don't have premiums. And of the 10 nations you could play, 4 of them demand premium ships. So what that means is you'd have to be decently established with econ flags and/or premiums to earn her. Two buddies of mine who are around a few hundred games or so in I was telling them "definitely play to earn a mediocre, but solid premium" pretty much was pointless. I feel bad for alot of people who will have to grind this out hard to earn her as it will be many and the average player I highly doubt owns a nice premium for so many nations. For a decent portion I suspect this will be merely outright impossible. Nothing will be done and this was merely to rant and lament my disappointment, as greed here has been rapidly taking over the pay model for this game and i'm sure some here remembers my thread I posted recently on the matter. I simply won't recommend this game to interested friends asking for my opinion. This time of year is a time of giving, but for corporations a time to have dollar signs in their eyes. At least for those who stop to think about how this was done and how you (WG) as a business have conducted yourselves for this past year, know which side of the fence you stand on. Truly a shame. By the way: I am not F2P, look for yourself and have even purchased PEF. Just thought i'd add that in. And for those disagreeing about my opinion: That's fine, go ahead. I'm a member of the community and have every right to say what I want on a subject so as long as it isn't insulting/breaking forum rules. I'm merely here to express my opinion. If people agree, fantastic. If people don't, that's fine too. Edit 2: Seems there was a thread/poll to leave your opinion, i'll leave that here.

    Rant Time

    I'd like to start this by saying I understand that somethings are planned to change but it's still frustrating to deal with some of these bullet points. I am first and foremost a BB main, but I play some cruiser and rarely DD. If battleship AP was dealing too much damage and made battleship gameplay dull and simple then can we please do something about switching shell types? Knowing when to switch shell types is more of a gamble. It's picking the shell for the likely target, pick wrong and potential alpha goes way down to the point where it's rage inducing. Sure, 15 seconds from Expert Loader is nice, but it still remains such a roll of the dice, it's still better to sling nothing but AP. I've tried Montana, she does well with only AP overpens but ships in the German BB line? Secondaries are no excuse as they are CRTL click, the point of the change was to make the game more dynamic but I'm still waiting to see that. Note: I do agree that the damage from AP was too much in most circumstances and I'm more happy that it's been changed. DDs always seemed to have a low population count, this changed help but by shifting BB play into more luck. Which brings me to my next point. RNG, I've had some moments with good RNG. However, it's those moments where a broadside cruiser at 7km gets spared while one at 20km doesn't, that is most remembered. I know it's there to give the lower end of the players a better fighting chance and to learn from their mistakes but I've yet to see why I should delete a good player at extreme range while a bad one gets spared. With my luck, this happens too often. One salvo and suddenly three fires, which means ~58% of my health if I do not spec into a tank build. Once again this brings me to my next point. Commander skills and builds are so damn linear, it's really not that much of a choice. If a BB is not specialized in stealth and DoT survivability, it's goodbye. Sure, sometimes a secondary or AA build has it's moments but they are so far and few in between it's a waste. I'm not calling for a BB buff or nerf. Making the commander skills more dynamic would be awesome. The National flavors of battleships is such a mess. The German citadel niche is not unique and the secondaries are not unique. Those were the TWO of the three MAIN selling points of that nation. The other being hydro. Not enough to compensate for what happens when they face other battleships from a different nation. If AP pens on DDs were such an unforgiving thing, is it possible to say that flooding is too? 60% for an un-specialized flood is crazy. Too [edited]crazy. A torpedo that does 18k and gets a full flooding on a Yamato is roughly 76k. Or 78% of the ships health. This gets worse the less health you have but is greatly influenced by damage repair. Which is most notably the slowest for battleships. They're suppose to be more survivable than the other classes but how come their damacon is arguably the worst? At this point I'd also argue that citadels are too punishing. I'm not advocating that either flooding or citadels should be removed, just that flooding is the "50 seconds and I'm gonna die no matter what I do because I was on fire in 4 spots" kinda thing. I'd rather take an extra 4k damage that I cannot heal then the 30k of flooding. I understand there is a change in the works. I like the addition of HE penetration being listed in port, but by god... how am I suppose to know the penetration of the AP without external sources? The armor viewing mechanic in [edited] is really bloody good, is there any way for that to be mimicked in this game or would that be a copyright horror? Either way, I'd like to get to know all the guns penetration through the game, not the forum. Anyway, that's all. Really helps to vent and thank you to whoever got through this rant.
  4. Can someone please clarify if I am wrong about this. From the way I am reading the update notes, anyone who receives the ship drop from these crates will receive a unique instance of Atago (I will use Atago as the example throughout this post). Who's only defining characteristic is a differently colored permacamo from the default. WHY?!?! What does this accomplish? What on earth could have stopped Wargaming from just gifting a regular Atago that has a new unique permacamo? We've already seen It's not impossible for ships to have multiple kinds of permacamo. I have the anniversary camo for Atago already, not to mention the existence of Sharks v Eagles and Halloween camos for other ships as well. Are you telling me it was less effort for Wargaming to create a duplicate Atago with a different name and different default camo, rather than just gift an Atago with a new camo added? This is ridiculous. Not only will previous owners of these ships have to transfer commanders to play this ship (yes I know it's still free, but it's still annoying to HAVE to do that JUST to see that camo in battle.) But now we also have to spend the not-cheap amount of credits to outfit the upgrades to this unwanted duplicate ship. Wargaming wouldn't even have to give compensation doubloons for previous owners in my book if they don't want to. I would be totally fine with that if it meant I didn't have to have THREE Atago clones in my port!
  5. Dear Wargaming, Do you even play your own game? HE for battleships is better then AP. 32 hits with AP on broadsided ships...literally the worst team I have ever played and this happens? My buddy fires one salvo of AP for 20k (got a citadel), however, the other 80k damage he did was with HE. What is the point anymore in firing AP? The screenshots here are not of some tier 5 battleship ship and it is not like I don't know how to play the game. I am in an Iowa with a dispersion upgrade and an 11 point captain. I played with moderate aggression and pushed with my team. I played a BB like it should. I fired at broadsides, weak areas of the armor, and places I have gotten citadels before. Every single shot either missed entirely because it would straddle enemies I shot at from further away, or over pen in places where it really shouldn't. Again, I'll bring up the issue, why fire AP when I could have just fired HE the whole time and done 10x the damage I did? I don't have to worry about bouncing and over pens, the fire chance is really high, and I get rewarded for the 23 second wait between firing. Also raising the issue, what is the point in advancing...if every battleship is firing HE and doing well, why would I move up to make an easier target? This is why battleships stay in the back and don't move up. Sure there are a few that do and I applaud the ones that do, but most don't. Jingles even made a video about that or do you just not pay attention to his content since he left your community contributor program because of poor practices. Look, I love this game and I want it to do great, but stop throwing the mechanics down the crapper. This game had some kinks to work out sure, but its become a bit of a joke now. Congratulations, you're making money, but don't let this thing become like World of Tanks Console where the experienced players don't play nearly as much because all they do is re-skin things and call it new. Old map now has rain on it...calls it new map. HMH Tank has a different color then its normal tank...calls it entirely new tank. Think of the Black Edition tanks but year round...its a joke. Like I said, I love this game, just stop pissing the potential away. Sincerely, Defiant_Act 5 Questions to the community: Do you think Battleship gameplay has gotten better, worse, or just different since launch? Do you think that the overall gameplay has gotten better, worse, or just different since launch? Do you agree with me in that Battleship HE has gotten out of hand? If not, why? Do you think Battleships should even have HE? (I'm thinking for historical purposes here). What are some good things that you like about this game? (I like being able to captain a ship I have been on) What are some issues you have with this game and how do you think they can be fixed? Thats it for my long rant. Answer the question down below if you'd like. See you out there Captains.
